qjail-ipv6-testing(8)	  BSD System Manager's Manual	 qjail-ipv6-testing(8)

NAME
     qjail-ipv6-testing	-- Details explaining how to perform testing of	ipv6
     addresses used in qjail non-vnet and vnet jails.

THINGS NOT COVERED HERE
     Setting up	host ipv6 connectivity from your public	ISP or local ipv6 con-
     nectivity across your LAN.

TESTING	DESCRIPTION
     This testing setup	is limited to just the host where qjail	is running.
     It's intended to be used to test the connectivity between the hosts ipv6
     address and the ipv6 addresses you	assigned to your qjail non-vnet	jails
     and vnet jails to verify things are working as they should. The host's
     firewall should not have any bearing on this testing, But a firewall in
     the vnet jail will	have an	effect.	To simplify things the vnet jail
     should not	have any firewall running, or must have	a rule to default to
     passing all ipv6 packets from the ping6 command.

     ipv6 has a	range of ipv6 ip address numbers reserved for local LAN	use.
     Defined as	fc00::/7 this is just like 10.0.0.0/8

     To	test qjail non-vnet jails and vnet jails for local ipv6	connectivity,
     the host needs a default local ipv6 ip address. Use this command on the
     host to create one. Replace fxp0 with the interface name your jails are
     using.

       ifconfig	fxp0 inet6 fc00::1 alias
	       and to remove it
       ifconfig	fxp0 inet6 fc00::1 -alias

     The ipv6 addresses	used for jail testing are coded	like this.

     qjail create -4 10.0.10.10	-6 fc00::2 non-vnet1
     qjail create -4 10.0.10.20	-6 fc00::3,fc00::4,fc00::5 non-vnet2
     qjail create -4 10.0.10.30	-6 fc00::6,fc00::7,fc00::8  vnet10

     From a vnet jail console you can ping6 the	hosts ipv6 address this	way
       ping6 -c	2 fc00::1

     From the host you can ping6 any jail using	its ipv6 address this way
       ping6 -c	2 fc00::4    # This is the non-vnet2 jail
       ping6 -c	2 fc00::7    # This is the vnet10 jail

     For your information; as of 2016, Time Warner cable provider who is merg-
     ing with spectrum provides	ipv6 service as	part of	their normal internet
     service at	no extra cost. This is becoming	normal for all large internet
     services providers.
